Sea To Summit Talus II Sleeping Bag

Sea To Summit Talus II Sleeping Bag

Ever since one particular cold night on the foothills of the Atlas Mountains, Morocco đŸ‡˛đŸ‡Ś 2016, I knew I needed to up-the-anti regarding my sleeping bag. As some people sleep with the fires 🔥 of Gondor burning in them, I on the other hand, sleep on the opposite spectrum ie. chilled!

My old Cumulus bag was purchased for my New Zealand đŸ‡łđŸ‡ż cycle in 2012. It’s had plenty of use. It’s supposedly rated to -7 degreee comfort … bah humbug! I freeze my nuts off by that point. In fact, I do, anything near to zero!

While in Perth, Australia đŸ‡ŚđŸ‡ş end of the 2017, I had a browse at a Talus II in an outdoor shop. I knew that moment I coveted it! I purchased one here in the UK early 2018. I paid ÂŁ289. As of the August 2018, it’s ÂŁ320. Didn’t I do well! The bag was also considerably cheaper in the UK compared to Aus. But considering it’s manufactured in China 🇨🇳 and then probably shipped direct to the UK. I think! Missing the expensive goods market in Aus.

I’ve used Sea To Summit gear previously and been very impressed with the quality and back-up customer service. Even in the UK! And again, with this bag, the quality belies the price. One major thing that I focused on, is an anti-snag-zip đŸ¤ If you’ve used bags where the zips snags (all the bloody time with the Cumulus) you’ll love this zip system. It seems to be a straightforward process of a hardened layer of material next to each zip-slider. Works really well đŸ˜

As I write this (August 2018), I’ve yet to use the bag in anger. So I’ll follow this post up with a further review once I’ve been out in the wilds đŸ•ď¸
